Simpson's Busy Season is Now On
at the Pheasant Farm
Gene Simpson is a busy man
these days. His China , pheasant
farm just at this time requires much
attention because it is the begin-
-ninfr of the hatching season. The
first brood of the season was ex
pected today. Mr. Simpson has
one hundred China pheasants now
laying, and from past observation
and experience he is led to estimate
that from these he will obtain 4000
eggs this season, or an average of
40 eggs for each bird. It is not un
usual for a China hen in captivity
to lav 60 eggs in' a season and they
have been known to lay as high as
80. It is said that in captivity they
lay a larger number of eggs than
in the wild state.
Pheasant eggs are sold by Mr.
Simpson at $3.00 per dozen. The
trade in eggs is confined exclusively
to points on this coast, as the eggs
will not bear shipment as great dis
tances as will chicken's eggs.
Last season Mr. Simpson reared
400 birds, the earlier part of the
season being unfavorable, but this
season with ordinary luck, on ac
count of having a larger number of
birds he expects to bring 600 to
maturity. About 90 percent of
pheasant eggs hatch, but only 40
percent of the young birds survive
the first two or three weeks. Af
ter this, under Mr. Simpson's
methods they become thrifty and
are likely to come to maturity.

xramc 01 norses. ror a long time
the draft on Benton county for big
horses has been severe. To those
who know only of the many ship
ments from here it appears that the
supply would long since have been
exhausted, but somehow the flash
of a sufficient number of twent-dol-lar
gold pieces brings the desired
goods to market. The heavy de
mand elsewhere for heavy draft 1
horses and driving animals creates
a local demand and consequent
higher price for smaller draft ani
mals and inferior driving stock of
all ages.' A number of buyers from
points in Oregon and Washington
were in Corvallis this week in
search of good draft and driving
horses and the offerings in cash
have been so tempting that it was
difficult for owners of such to re
tain their property and a few did
not do so.
This morning there was quite a
boat-load of horses for Portland,
flee and in my care and custody,
